GROSSMONT COLLEGE–Commencement will jump off today, starting at 5:30 p.m. As previously reported, attendance will be around 4,000, including an estimated 1,500 student who will receive either or both an Associate’s Degree and a Certificate of Achievement.

Today on campus, faculty and staff put finishing touches on the main quad which, by virtue of today’s good weather, will be the site of Grossmont College’s 50th Annual Commencement Ceremony. (Otherwise, the ceremonies would have been staged in the main parking structure.)

Among those preparing were Dennis Sigler of Maintenance;  Dean of Student Affairs Augustin Albarran, his administrative assistant, Maria Baeza; and Grossmont’s Director of Printing Holly Phan.
